Re: Battery operated alarms

What batteries do you mean. Today, I have been replacing the batteries to my home smoke/heat alarms (Hard wired with 9v battery back up) as one was beeping to say it was getting low. I had dated them when installed in May'15 and the batteries showed May/June'19 as the best by date. For me it was a f...

Re: No food or drink beyond this point!!!!

We’ve set out target audience - the staff. From them to students adopt their habits. There seem to be few places these days who do not allow or even encourage the provision of drinking water either personal bottles or the larger water fountains, and it’s a natural progression to coffee, tea etc to e...

Re: Interview tips

Competency based interview - as I understand them, the original job desc will show the competencies expected. They will be the key ones they will look at in interview. For example if it mentioned "communication", then the interview may well ask how you would demonstrate your comms skills - that may ...

Re: Interview tips

If the invite to interview includes the members name/ role, does it include what the interview will consist of - for example asking for a 10 min presentation or to demonstrate specific skills. If so, target and prep each one. If not, bullet point the job spec and be knowledgeable how you would answe...

Re: Very quick extinguisher colour / date question

Great question that I couldn’t help look at according to Surrey Fire website, they ceased in 1997.

Re: Eye tests

No specific requirements for driving, have a think about... LGV / PCV drivers have then 5 years when required Opticians like to see you every 2 years Some companies like to do checks annually (Along with D/L etc) Some accreditations (Such as FORS) require them at 6 monthly intervals Consider a re-ch...

Re: Living with an Electrical Fire Risk

An interesting scenario. We know something has to be done to replace the fittings etc. Whether that is done today or next year is less of an issue compared to how it is done. I'd agree with Jack Kane, in parallel, to increase the temp protections such as additional electrical monitoring through fuse...

Re: Requirements

On first read I thought along the lines of a house buy - surely that surveyor etc, which immediately leads to the question of flood and such like, let alone things like power supply. You are looking to a very long list.

Re: Role of the H&S Manager

I’d be reluctant and quote legislation as a last resort. If you meet the MD, chat through a r3cent unsafe act. Lead into how we managed to c9mplete it without injury. Then let them lead as to what could go wrong, the consequences etc. We can then use the reverse terror comment - the company has to b...

Re: Fire separation reports

Who is asking you to do the report? They will pay for it. If it’s the Contractor then they pay. Is insurers ask for a copy then they need to go to the contractor, unless your contract says you can release it. Similarly, if you’re asked direct by insurer, then they pay and get the copy. I’d say it’s ...

Re: Role of the H&S Manager

How about a different form of notifying the SMT. Take a short video and send to the MD, give it 2-3 mins and then call and speak about the video. Get their approval/ rejection within moments of the unsafe act. I’d do it in a non- confrontational way, gentle ack if they want it to proceed, get the re...

Re: Ladder safety

Have to agree with Alexis and Safe&Sound that it looks like it is intended for the home market and initially thought it may have some credence. But what I had to watch several times is that it's held in place only by some "gaffer" tape. I was expecting it then to describe some form of self tapping s...
